Sire line: Koheilan-Adjuze DB
Dam line: Trakehner "K" line
BRUSALLY PANATELA'S Arabian sire, Brusally Orzetyn, competed in dressage and won against warmbloods up to Prix St. Georges level. He also competed in horse trials, and sired numerous performance horses. Panatela's Polish Trakehner dam, Korona, was sired by Sobol, a half-brother to the approved stallion Sobek. Sobol's sire, Harbin, was known as a sire of jumpers. Korona's dam, Kielcza, was by Dyskobol, who also sired the approved stallion Cienin.
Like her sire, Panatela had a long and successful dressage career with a number of trainers in the Scottsdale area. She competed to Fourth Level, garnering several regional awards. Panatela retired sound from competition at age 19. When she was 24, she had the honor of being ridden by the well-known Olympian and judge, General Jonathan R. Burton, who had just turned 90, and wanted to ride a horse one last time. Panatela's obituary, detailing her interesting life and times, can be read here.
